This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of eastern North
Dakota, west central and northwest Minnesota.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A few thunderstorms will occur over the southern Red River Valley
into northwest Minnesota this morning, although severe storms are
not expected.

Dense fog will continue over the Devils Lake region through mid
morning. Visibilities below a quarter mile will make travel

Very mild temperatures will continue to melt the remaining snow
pack, with area rivers and streams slowly responding. Persons
living near rivers, streams, and low lying areas should monitor
for future statements concerning the spring melt.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

One last very mild day is expected on Tuesday, before
temperatures begin a downward trend for mid to late week. This
will slow down or stop the snow melt, but rivers and streams will
continue to respond.

Some snowfall is expected for areas along and north of highway 2
Tuesday night into early Wednesday. At this point, accumulations
of an inch or two are possible over portions of the Devils Lake
region. Some mixed precipitation is also possible.

A winter storm system will move into portions of the Northern
Plains late Thursday into Friday, bringing accumulating snow with
it. Most of the snow will occur south of this area, but some
light accumulations may brush areas south of a Lisbon to Park
Rapids line.


Spotter activation is not anticipated.
